Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Vancouver Canucks

NHL: Tuesday, December 10, 2019 at 10:00 PM EST

The Maple Leafs had dropped two straight games before a solid road win over the defending champion St. Louis Blues in their last game. The team is closer to the bottom of the top in the Eastern Conference and the main issue for the team this season has been their defense. Toronto can score but they only rank 23rd in the league in GAA.

The Canucks have won two in a row and three of their last four games and their attack has killed it as of late. They are right in the middle of the pack in the Western Conference and on the season they are 7-3-3 at home. The defense has not been great for Vancouver on the season but the offense has and they rank 8th in the NHL averaging 3.33 goals per game.

Offense Wakes Up

In losing two in a row, the Maple Leafs only scored one goal in each game before their offense woke up in their last game in a 5-2 win over the St. Louis Blues. The team started the game on fire scoring four goals in the first period and Auston Mathews and Zach Heiman each scored two goals. Frederik Andersen (14-7-3 2.54 GAA) stopped 26 of 28 shots in the game and he is slated to get the start against the Canucks. He has given up two goals in each of his last two starts and the Leafs had lost two in a row before winning his last start.

Heiman only has five goals on the season but three of them have come in his last two games. Mathews leads the Leafs in both points and goals and he had gone five straight games without a goal before lighting the lamp twice in the last game. This season Toronto is 7-9-0 on the road and the club has won seven of their last 10 games facing teams from the Western Conference.

Attack Blows Up Again

After scoring five goals in a win, the Canucks’ offense blew up again in their last game, which was a 6-5 OT win over the Buffalo Sabres. J.T, Miller scored on a power play for the game-winner in OT, four other players scored, and Josh Leivo had two goals.

Thatcher Demko (7-4-1 3.00 GAA) stopped 23 of 28 shots in the game and #1 G Jacob Markstrom (8-7-3 2.70 GAA) is scheduled to get the start against the Leafs. Toronto had won three of his starts in a row before losing his last one 3-2 to the Edmonton Oilers where he gave up three goals on 28 shots.

Miller leads three players for the Canucks that have double digits in goals with 13 goals and he has three goals and four assists in his last five games. Elias Pettersson has 12 goals and leads the team with 33 assists, has two goals and two assists in his last five games, and had an assist in the 6-5 win over the Sabres. Vancouver has lost five of their last seven games following a win.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

The Maple Leafs have lost 10 of their last 11 games facing the Canucks in Vancouver and don’t look for that trend to change in this game. The Canucks attack has been en fuego in the last two games and they have netted at least five goals in three of their last four games. Toronto scored five goals in their last game in a win and while their offense will be solid in this game the same cannot be said about their defense. The Canucks will get the win in this game, which will be their 4th in their last five games.

Prediction: Canucks

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Leaning towards the Over in this one, as these teams combined for 11 goals in their last game. On top of that in four of the Canucks last five games the total has gone Over and in for of the Maple Leafs last five road games the total has gone Over. Defense will be at a premium in this non-conference game, as there will be goals aplenty. the light will be lit early and often in this game while each team will struggle on the defensive side of the ice. this will be a close game and a high scoring one, so the Over is THE pick for this contest.

Prediction: Over

I dig every sport and the NFL is my favorite. My team is the Redskins and my 2nd favorite is whoever is playing the Cowboys! I am a great handicapper and if you don't believe me just ask. I don't just write about betting on games I actually bet on them and I have done well, which is why it is a good idea to follow my picks.
